Rhinoplasty – nose surgery to achieve a harmonious size and shape
Rhinoplasty is also known as nasal surgery or nose job. It is a commonly performed cosmetic surgical procedure that produces changes in the appearance, structure, and function of the nose. A rhinoplasty can: reduce or increase the size of the nose, change the shape of the tip, narrow the width of the nostrils, or change the angle between the nose and the upper lip.
Rhinoplasty surgery is customized for each patient, depending on his or her needs. Incisions may be made within the nose or concealed in inconspicuous locations in and around the nose in the open or closed technical variations of this procedure. At times, cartilage grafts taken from within the nose or from other areas of the body may be recommended in order to help reshape the structure of the nose. The best candidates for nasal surgery are individuals who are looking for improvement, not perfection, in the appearance of their noses.
In addition to realistic expectations, good health, and psychological stability are important qualities for a patient considering nasal surgery. Rhinoplasty can be performed in conjunction with other surgeries. Dr. Chen Lee is a board-certified plastic surgeon.
